"Batu Caves - Day Trip" Batu Caves Tip by SLLiew

Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur: 127 reviews and 296 photos


Batu Caves in Selangor and north of Kuala Lumpur is world famous.

It is a limestone range where there is a famous Hindu cave temple. There are many hundred steps to climb to reach the caves.

During the Thaipusam festival (usually in January or February), it is a major pilgrimage with thousands of Hindus and tourists flocking to Batu Caves temple.

On other days, it is not crowded at all and a nice day trip out of Kuala Lumpur.
